Welcome to the week of requests, which is looking like it will be a week and a half of requests, due to my post-Labor Day late start, and the number of really excellent queries you lobbed my way. I thought we’d start with loafers, because a few of you were interested in them, and they’re nicely autumnal. I think these tasseled Doc Martens are pretty spiff, and these are quite similar but have a black sole.
This one from Everlane comes in a multitude of colors, but I like the idea of a poppy red.
This fuzzy pair is splurgetastic, but too excellent to be ignored.
And I like these in army green, and think they’d be a slightly cooler—and equally versatile—alternative to black.
This loafer pump is eminently office-worthy.
The elegant hardware here reminds me of Gucci.
I’m not quite certain why, but I’m fond of the slightly orthopedic feel of the white sole on these Hush Puppies.
This grey pair looks a whole lot more expensive than it is.
These look like very modern pilgrim shoes in a way that weirdly appeals.
Another Gucci-esque pair, but at a very nice price.
Classic Sperrys get a stylish update in pale pink.
And finally: I think the hardware here is really cool.
